Sausage and Cream Cheese Crescent Rolls

It's amazing all the things you can do with crescent roll dough!  Crescent rolls were even one of the basket ingredients on Chopped the other night during the dessert round.  Neither of those chefs were very creative...Because on Pinterest, I've seen them turned into chicken and dumplings, french dip sandwiches, and even creatures...snails.

This morning for a weekend breakfast treat I made these Sausage and Cream Cheese Crescents.  They are so good!  This morning I was lazy so we had these with just a fruit smoothie.  But these go so well with scrambled eggs, grits...They are like a sausage biscuit substitute.

So for the recipe you need...

First brown the sausage and drain any grease.

Mix the sausage with the cream cheese and
spoon a heaping tablespoon onto each roll.

Then roll up and bake.

Sausage and Cream Cheese Crescent Rolls

2- 8 oz cans refrigerated crescent rolls
1 lb breakfast sausage
8 oz cream cheese, softened

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.  In a skillet brown the sausage and drain any excess grease.  In a bowl mix together the cream cheese and browned sausage.  Separate the crescent rolls in triangles.  Spoon a heaping tablespoon of the sausage mixture on to each crescent roll.  Roll up.  Place on a baking sheet and bake for 12 to 15 minutes, or until golden brown. 

Makes 16 crescents

Be sure to pick up a couple cans of crescent rolls to make these sausage and cream cheese stuffed a few extra cans for these recipes...Pepperoni Pizza Crescent Roll-Ups, Mini Pigs In A Blanket, Chicken Bacon Ranch Crescents.


  1. Usage is only limited by your imagination! I made crescent rolls with smoked chicken salad and sprinkle of cheddar jack cheese rolled up inside the other night. Dip in a little ranch dressing. Delish!

  2. Looks like my kind of breakfast...or breakfast for dinner.

  3. These belong on a breakfast buffet, right next to the scrambled eggs. YUM!

  4. These little guys rock on so many levels. Sad thing is I have everything I need to make them but the sausage and cream cheese are reserved for another recipe tomorrow. Gah!
